Computer Vision Service Umbo’s Light is a cloud-based artificial intelligence and computer vision service. It integrates with SmartCloud, Umbo’s video management system, as well as Umbo’s learning cameras to deliver accurate alerts to users when it detects specific human behaviors on video streams. Umbo Light is built on rapid convolutional neural networks, an advanced deep learning algorithm. Light looks at temporal information within a video sequence rather than just traditional image detection to allow it to train on behaviors. This ability makes Light’s alerts among the most accurate. www.umbocv.ai Red LED Medium-intensity Obstruction Light Avlite’s L-864 is an ultra-bright, energy-efficient and cost-effective lighting solution used to mark obstacles such as telecommunications and utility towers, wind turbines, cranes and buildings. Multiple, high-intensity LEDs are encased in a corrosion-resistant acrylic lens, which is specifically designed to maximize light intensity and uniformity. The L-864 incorporates internal diagnostic checking and an alarm contact for remote monitoring. Its universal mounting bracket provides an identical footprint for Avlite’s temporary L810 and permanent L-864 lighting solutions. The light is designed to allow less time, equipment and manpower aloft, which means a quicker, easier and potentially safer obstruction light installation. It is available in two configurations, universal DC (12–48 volts DC) and universal AC (110–240 volts AC). Work/Rescue Descender Connect-It Wireless Wireless offers PMI’s D4 work/rescue descender, which features a unique and innovative cam action for precise control at slow or fast speeds. The progressive cam works by way of one cam operating inside another cam. The D4 has a 500-pound working load limit, which means it is suitable for two-man rescue, without the need for creating extra friction. The handle mechanism is designed to rotate through 360 degrees, making its use easier and simpler. The handle itself is made from aluminum rather than plastic and is coated in a specially chosen paint that provides extra grip. The D4 works on 11-millimeter rope, and the larger D5 works on 12.5-millimeter rope. www.ciwireless.com Fall Protection Rescue Clip Tower Safety & Instruction has added the Yates Industrial rescue clip by AHS Rescue (www.ahsrescue.com) to its rescue training as another technique for rescuing someone from a cell tower. The rescue clip was originally designed by a climber in Redding California, who would screw the clip into painter pole and attach to the first bolt on sport routs to prevent falling. The rescue clip with the pole extends up to 18 feet. Made of extruded aluminum tubing, it resists bending, collapses to 4 feet and weighs 2 pounds. www.towersafety.com Safety Harness The Buckingham Manufacturing S1 Pro Harness from Safety One Training has articulating points at the sternal connection as well as the legs to allow more freedom of movement while working. The umbilical connection point consists of two 5,000 pounds-minimum- rated web loops that can be used in tandem or individually to provide multiple connection options. Also attached to the umbilical loops is a 5,000 pounds-minimum-rated aluminum ring for attaching the optional S1 formed batten work seat. This ring can also be used to attach a descender or other devices. With connection points at the hips, sternal, umbilical and dorsal area, this harness is versatile for any job. There are two rescue loops built into the shoulder straps for confined-space rescue. The waist strap is partially removable to allow the user to add a variety of bags and tool holders and, with the gear loops on the back of the body pad, there is plenty of space for tools and equipment. www.proshop.safetyoneinc.com Tower Descent Devices Westfall Pro’s D4 and D5 descenders from GME Supply are designed for use with 7/16-inch or ½-inch rope. These tower descent devices feature a unique progressive cam action that offers precise control at slow or fast speeds. They have a 500-pound working load limit, making them suitable for a two-man rescue. The handle is made from aluminum and coated to provide extra grip. The handle mechanism is designed to rotate 360 degrees, and it is accompanied by audible clicks to help the user identify the correct position of the handle. The descenders feature an anti-panic break to halt a descent that exceeds safe speeds. The descenders meet NFPA 1983 and ANSI Z359.4. www.gmesupply.com Wire-grab Fall Arrestor The TTWG-500 wire-grab fall arrestor from Tuf-Tug Products is designed to be compatible with 3/8-inch diameter cable systems. Designed for vertical fall-arrest protection, the product features dual cams for double strength and double safety. An optional 5/16-inch size is also available. The product also features removable dual-cam wire grab and automatic hands-free climbing. In addition, Tuf-Tug now offers tower leg tie-off anchors to provide fall-protection safety for climbers on towers with round and angle legs. The anchors are designed to provide 100 percent tie-off for tower technicians to safely access structures for work at heights. www.tuf-tug.com Buckingham’s BuckTech harness has been given a makeover. Not only does it have a new look, but the manufacturer redesigned the seat to make it more comfortable and easier to change out from the original version. It weighs about 8 pounds. The harness’ removable seat, lightweight aluminum D-Rings and quick-connect buckles make the harness versatile. www.buckinghammfg.com
